First of all congratulations for achieving such a significant weight loss. You should also start inspiring others in the community now. With such amount of weight loss, skin tone does get disturbed. Yes massage is helpful. Also do certain strenghtening exercises and stretches. Joining a gym would be ideal. Refrain from sauna bath as it could harm your skin further due to excessive heat.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
It appears you have excess cellulite. For toning you may try tone up anti-cellulite creams available in the market. Stick to healthy diet. No junk food. Add fresh fruits and vegetables everyday. Drink plenty of water.
